What are the main symptoms of diabetes and how it can be cured and what exercise useful to cure it.
Mr Azad, There are mainly 2 types of diabetes T1 and T2. Most common variety is T2 DM, occurring due to deficiency of Insulin , secreted by beta cells of pancreas or resistance to its action or both. Plus being over weight and inactivity contribute to it. Usually does not cause any symptoms, hence many persons do not come to know they have diabetes. When fully developed may cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained tiredness and weight loss. This disease can only be controlled by taking proper drugs or insulin injections. There is no cure for it. Treatment has to be for lifetime. Person has to adapt a modified lifestyle like : taking restricted diet matching ideal body weight, exercising regularly, avoiding too much of sweets, junk foods, pastries, alcohol and smoking. Exercising 1 hour a day, consuming more of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Mr. lybrate-user, If a person has diabetes and stops the treatment that is being taken for reducing blood glucose, then blood glucose levels will go hay wire. Similarly if antihypertensive drug/s are stopped, BP is also likely to up. Thanks.

Hypothyroidism now a days is more an iodine deficiency disease, but it has become an autoimmune disease. In homoeopathy we give the medicine which makes the body generator, an adequate thyroid level, so that gradually body resume it's original functionality which is visible through the thyroid level test time to time, and gradually you can get rid of your altroxin as well, and may be after sometime you can stop homoeopathy medicine as your thyroid level remains normal afterwards. Avoid cabbage, cauliflower, soya in food.

Mr. lybrate-user, Dengue is a self limiting viral fever. It is problematic only when there may be internal bleeding resulting from platelet reduction. That episode has nothing to do with diabetes. Diabetes needs to be treated properly with suitable drugs either oral anti diabetes ones or Insulin injections or both. Treatment depends on the blood glucose levels. If disease in control then FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If one does not maintain proper control, then there can be long term complications associated with multiple systems. If you are looking for specific treatment advice, please come in a private conversation with details like FB, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Then I will be able to give specific advice. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, healthy food intake is essential for maintaining good health. Excess of anything is bad. When one consumes excess sweets sucrose intake goes up, which a simple carbohydrate, it does put load on insulin, plus taking excess sucrose (sugar) has been proved to be unhealthy in the long run. Excess sugar or extra carbs taken will get converted to fat and weight increase can occur. Fortunately you are having less weight, but if this habit continues, weight increase can be a consequence. There is nothing like balancing between excess sweet eating and maintaining normal blood sugar. My advice is to reduce the sweets eating. There is no specific remedy for that, you simply have decide and reduce the intake. Care has to be taken if there is a family history of t2 diabetes. Thanks.

Endocrinology and Diabetes

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Endocrinology and Diabetes

Endocrinology deals with hormones, hormone systems and hormonal disorders. The organs that come under endocrinology are pituitary gland, adrenal glands, ovaries or testicles, thyroid gland and pancreas. These organs maintain the chemical balance of the body by secreting hormones which regulate all the body systems.

Diabetes is the name for a group of diseases which are characterized by abnormalities in the absorption of glucose and blood sugar levels.

Relation between the endocrine system and diabetes:

The hormone insulin is secreted by the pancreatic beta cells called the islets of Langerhans. It is a peptide hormone that metabolizes carbohydrates, proteins and fats, stimulates the conversion of glycogen or stored protein to usable glucose and also helps the body cells to absorb the glucose. The movement of ionized or free calcium (Ca2+) is also somewhat dependent on insulin.

Insulin is secreted from the pancreas in two phases - the first phase occurs when blood sugar level is high and need to be absorbed into the cells while the second phase is associated with a slower production not influenced by blood sugar.

Types of diabetes and how they are affected by the endocrine system

  1. Type 1 diabetes mellitus: This condition is caused by underproduction of insulin by the pancreatic beta cells. It is called 'insulin dependent diabetes mellitus' (IDDM), since it is directly influenced by the hormone.
  2. Type 2 diabetes mellitus: This type of the disorder is not directly dependent on insulin. It is usually caused by obesity and lack of physical exercise. The cells develop resistance to insulin and because of that blood sugar is not absorbed properly. This eventually leads to under-secretion of insulin.
  3. Gestational diabetes mellitus: Pregnant women might develop high levels of blood sugar even if they did not have diabetes in the past. This occurs due the changes in the regular hormonal cycles and secretion of pregnancy hormones and can result is complications and miscarriage.

Sub-specialties of diabetic endocrinology

  1. Diabetic renal disease: The kidneys filter the blood. If there are chronically high levels of sugar in blood, hormones like erythropoietin (regulates production of red blood cells) and renin (regulates blood plasma and fluid content) are not produced. As a result, the kidneys' capacity is reduced and waste materials build up in blood.
  2. Diabetic vision problems: Insulin problems may cause the blood vessels supplying the retina (light sensitive eye tissue) to expand or contract. This causes blurry and distorted vision and pain in the eyes.

Mr Hari, A person with diabetes has to take proper drugs like oral anti diabetics or insulin injections or both depending upon sugar levels. Plus daily exercise for 1 hour and taking a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of physical exercises.

Hello, Decision of taking medications or not should be a specialist doctors opinion. Do consult the doctor. Avoid refined carbohydrates like maida, bakery products, white pasta, sweets and excess salt. Walking or brisk walking is extremely important. Monitoring of blood sugar levels everyday is must.

I am diabetic patient, what kind of diet I will take and what kind of exercise I will do for better result.
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

When the beta cells of the pancreas is damaged than there is less production of insulin and hence sugar levels rises and we call it as diabetes and random normal value should be less than 150

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 in adults and treated wid oral tablets. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.
